You can find many recreational opportunities along the Nebraska Public Power District canal system in the western part of the state.

On the shores of Lake Maloney, we talked with Brian Hope who is the Land Management Coordinator with NPPD.  We talked with him about the lake, which is one of the reservoirs produced by the canal system.  “The lake is a regulating reservoir for the North Platte Hydro,” Hope said.  “Basically, the water you see here has come fro

m the North Platte river out of Wyoming.”

As you might imagine, Lake Maloney offers a wide variety of ways people can enjoy the outdoors.  “Specifically, here at Lake Maloney, there are three areas that the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission leases from us,” Hope said.  “They allow all of the amenities they typically would.  At the Outlet Park, there’s camping and fishing opportunities, fish cleaning stations, showers, and two boat ramps.  They also have a park at The Inlet called Kansas Point.  Additionally, we have six day-use areas that are free of charge.  With the Game and Parks Commission locations, you need a permit.  But these day-use areas are free.  Five of those have a boat ramp with access to the lake, and our south beach area offers picnic tables, grills, and gazebos.”

There are a number of housing opportunities at Lake Maloney.  “Right now there are about 350 homes and cabins around the lake that are leased from NPPD,” Hope said.  “The majority of the homeowners outside the boat clubs live here all year long.”  There are some off-lake lots, but currently there is no new development happening.  “What’s here is essentially it,” Hope said.  “The homes are bought and sold, that’s how you obtain ownership.  You are on a lease with NPPD, but you do own all of the improvements on the lot.”

Lake Maloney is part of a larger canal system that covers 60 miles and starts on the east end of Lake Ogallala.

 “The canal system itself is open to the public,” Hope said.  “There are a few spots that don’t offer public access due to safety reasons.  And, NPPD also maintains a canal road that offers public access.  The north supply area near the Keystone diversion, is probably one of the premier trout fishing areas in the state of Nebraska.”  Hope says another large lake that draws visitors besides Lake Maloney is the Sutherland Reservoir.  “It’s about a 3,000 surface-acre lake,” Hope said.  “It has two boat ramps, and several camping sites under the Game and Parks lease.  All of the water sports you can imagine, you can take part in at Lake Maloney or up at the Sutherland Reservoir.”

N-P-P-D officials tell us Lake Maloney also offers a three-mile walking trail

Where can I still travel to under the new coronavirus tier system?

On Monday, the UK government introduced a new three-tier system of local Covid alert levels in England. This means different areas have different restrictions. The new English levels are medium (tier 1), high (tier 2), and very high (tier 3). Tier 1 carries on with the rules that came in on 25 September, including the Rule of Six and 10pm closing for pubs and restaurants. Tier 2, soon to include nearly half the population of England, bans indoor mixing between households. Tier 3 (currently the Liverpool region and parts of Lancashire) closes any pubs that don’t serve “substantial” meals and advises people not to travel out of or outsiders to stay in the area.

Meanwhile, Wales is banning visitors from Covid hotspots from Friday evening, while Scotland advises against travelling into or out of high-risk areas. Under Northern Ireland’s new rules, most hotels are shut and “no unnecessary travel should be undertaken”.

Which areas are in tier 2?Tier 2 currently covers large parts of the Midlands, north-east and north-west England, including areas around Newcastle, Tyneside and Manchester, as well as Leeds, Sheffield, Nottingham, Leicester and Birmingham. From midnight on Friday they will be joined by London, parts of Cumbria, Essex, Derbyshire, Surrey and Yorkshire, meaning more than half the population of England will be living with tier 2 or 3 restrictions. A government postcode checker tells you which areas are in which tier.

Can I travel to other parts of the UK if I live in a tier 2 area?Yes. You can still go on holiday to most areas, but only with people in your household or bubble. The tier 2 guidelines suggest people aim to “reduce the number of journeys you make where possible”. Friday evening sees a ban on visitors to Wales from Covid hotspots elsewhere in the UK. This means anyone from England’s tier 2 and 3 areas, Northern Ireland and the Scottish central belt. In Scotland, until at least Monday 26 October, people in the central belt areas are advised to limit travel.

What about days out in tier 2 areas?Many visitor attractions have introduced booking systems and some have reduced their hours, but most are open again and pleasantly uncrowded. As they do everywhere, restaurants and bars now have to shut at 10pm and often need to be booked in advance as they are limiting numbers. But, as long as you only visit as a household group (or keep to six outdoors), you can still go for a day out in tier 2 areas.

What if I don’t want to travel? Can I get a refund?It varies. Some hotels and self-catering companies are offering refunds; others are offering a credit note or new dates. Under the new system, most places are still open and bookable, so customers might be
